. these are issues rick perry will get the signal on. he and mitt romney are in michigan now. but the noise from florida is loud. herman cain's common sense conservativism with his 9-9-9 jobs and economic plan has gotten the attention of the sunshine state. it will echo around the country and particularly for rick perry. he'll have changing of policies or at least adjustments to make in the wake of this defeat. to come in with less than half of herman cain's support is a serious blow. he and mitt romney have a serious race ahead. fundraising after straw polls is key after long-term success and whether or not herman cain has staying power. now herman cain is at the top of the straw poll in florida and that means he's going to be on the top of the minds and mouths of republicans across the country in the days ahead. >> arthel: carl, it just makes it all so exciting. thank you, we'll talk to you later. >> rick: we will have is a lot more analysis of the results out of florida. the surprise win for herman cain and what's going on with romney and perry and the rest of the gop field? that's coming up

came out there was a similar straw poll in michigan, at an annual republican conference of mackinaw voters and romney got just over 50% of that one and we need to put it in perspective and it is a warning sign for governor perry, his debate performance affected his standing at least with florida voters if not republicans around the country. >> jamie: after the debate it is pretty clear that the governor felt he had not done as well as he could have in the debate. how much of a role did the issue of paying for kids of illegal immigrants' education, in his home state, how much did it play, his comments on that? >> i think that was an important issue, especially a lot of floridians, when they went to the straw poll, that is obviously immigration, is obviously a very important issue in florida, but, nationally, i think a lot of people were concerned that he was inarticulate and wasn't the smooth-talking texan we have gotten to know over the last five weeks and that is concerning baugh over the national stage he'll be facing one of the most eloquent public figures, barack obama, believe
